I made these for a party and they disappeared as fast as I could get them out of the oven. I make them now for football weekends and sometimes just when we feel like appetizers for dinner! So good, and even crunchier if you use a mini muffin tin. (Just watch how long you bake them if you go for the small tin.)
I made these as an accompaniment to dinner for Super Bowl - EXCELLENT!! this is a repeater for sure. I used about 2 cups of potatoes and halved the remaining ingredients. Tonight I'm going to make them again but I'm going to add 1/2 cup of the potato mixture to each muffin cup and maybe put the cheese on top for the last few minutes of baking. I forgot to spray the muffin tin (nonstick) and the 'nests' were really stuck to the bottom.
